Wagner: Das Rheingold - Frantz, Pölzer, Höngen, Wernigk; Moralt. Wien, 1948
Listen to a Sample:
- Ferdinand Frantz, as Wotan, brings an astonishing range of colors and dynamics, and seems unfazed by the vocal demands of this role.
- Elisabeth Höngen's rich voice goes a long way in taking some of the edge off this character.
- Julius Pölzer's Loge has a lot of character but is definitely lacking in beauty of tone.
